『Ding! accepting random quest.』
The sound of the system announcement filled his head.
There were a lot of random quests, depending on the situation, he could accept them or reject them as they were optional. The reward was pretty standard, and the difficulty was also moderate, so he couldn’t just abandon the quest. Yi Tianyun did not intend to accept the quest at the time, but the additional Prestige he could obtain meant that he had to accept it.
Killing monsters didn’t give Prestige, only completing a quest did.
Immediately, he quickly unsummoned the Snow Wolf King to avoid being seen. Beast Master was a profession, but it was extremely rare.
In order to avoid their suspicion or hostility, he didn’t want to show it.
Sure enough, several footsteps rang out in front of him. Several people rushed in from outside the forest. When they saw Yi Tianyun, they became wary, and quickly drew their sword, ready to defend themselves.
A brave man approached Yi Tianyun vigilantly, his cultivation was not that high. He was only a Second Level Spirit Refinement cultivator, but amongst this group of guards, he was relatively strong. There was a total of four guards, and a beautiful girl who he assumed was Yan Lingxue.
The four guards’ cultivation did not reach the Spirit Refinement Realm, they were around the Seventh or Eighth Level of the Body Refinement Realm, which was still an acceptable level for an escort. Yi Tianyun observes all of them in sequence, using his Eye of Appraisal, confirming their combat power.
What surprised him most was the old man who stuck close to Yan Lingxue, he did not have the highest cultivation level but he was still at a First Level Spirit Refinement. He seemed to be close to Yan Lingxue, he was probably a butler of some sort.
It seemed like Yan Lingxue had hired the guards to help her collect spirit herbs while ensuring her safety.
“No need to be alarmed, I’m just here to hunt.” Yi Tianyun smiled.
The crooked old man immediately straightened up when he saw Yi Tianyun and was obviously prepared for a skirmish. In the deserted forest, everyone was cautious when they came across someone.
“Wrrrrrrrrr!” Suddenly, a loud noise came from behind, and a group of giant bears stampeded through the woods, interrupting their conversation. It seemed like they were too close to a bear’s den. In here, if he wasn’t cautious of his surroundings, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he found himself surrounded by beasts all of a sudden.
In a blink of an eye, the bears had already surrounded them, completely blocking their escape route.
“Guards, draw your swords!” The guard’s leader screamed and pulled out his own sword, which was a low-level Spirit Weapon. Not everyone could make an upper-level Spirit Weapon like Yi Tianyun.
“Young Master, I am sorry, I have involved you in this matter.” Yan Lingxue apologized, but the others did not say a word, completely disregarding him.
Yi Tianyun observes her thoroughly, and it seemed like Yan Lingxue was quite well-mannered, at least she was not like these guards who did not even bother to speak a word to him.
“Don’t worry, this was bound to happen anyway, I will help you escape!” Yi Tianyun laughed, and approached them, however, he did not stick too close to them to reduce their discomfort.
“Kid, go away!” the leader yelled at him, he was afraid of Yi Tianyun robbing them.
“Big Brother Tan don’t be too anxious. I think this Young Master truly wants to help us.” Yan Lingxue said. “Moreover, at this time, it’s better to have more manpower, right?”
Tan Yongsheng tried to regain his composure, giving Yi Tianyun a curt nod.
A moment later a bear charged at them. Tan Yongsheng rushed over and slashed down at the bear with his sword. He slashed the giant bear into two halves, easily killing it.
Tan Yongsheng was stronger than these giant bears, so this outcome was not surprising.
The other guards were also currently fighting to defeat the giant bears near them. Only the old man did not move from his spot, he stayed at Yan Lingxue side. As long as it did not threaten Yan Lingxue, he would not do anything. Otherwise, why would they hire these guards?
“Roar!” At that moment, a giant bear suddenly rushed out of the forest and charged at Yan Lingxue. The bloody smell from its mouth was assaulted their senses.
Just as the old man prepared to kill the giant bear, Yi Tianyun rushed over and punched the bear with his bare fist. The giant bear was thrown away and disappeared into the forest.
Everyone looked at Yi Tianyun with shock. They were all in awe of his power. They didn’t expect him to smack away the giant bear with such ease. He had shown off his immense brute force!
『Ding! Congratulations on killing a giant bear! You gained 700 exp, 70 Crazy Point, and a Bear Skin!』
The notification rang out, confirming that he successfully killed the giant bear, but it didn’t give him anything valuable.
Yan Lingxue’s eyes sparked with interest, his strength wasn’t bad. It’s as if the bear was just flying on its own. He was really strong despite how he wasn’t giving out any strong aura. His appearance was not like that of a strong man at all.
Tan Yongsheng blinked and said nothing. He continued to clear a path forward and quickly broke out of their encirclement. In the process, the giant bears that were in their way were all killed.
Yi Tianyun also knocked away the giant bears on the other side, but his movements seemed too random. They’re all killing giant bears, so he didn’t want to draw unnecessary attention. The punch itself doesn’t seem like they instantly killed the bear. It’s as if he punched just to send them flying, but secretly the bear’s guts were shattered.
Since Yi Tianyun was helping them, they haven’t said anything, but they decided not to give him any reward as well.
Soon, under the leadership of Tan Yongsheng, they successfully broke through and escaped the siege of the giant bears. When everyone saw that no more giant bears chased them, they finally breathed a sigh of relief. It was not an easy task for them to clear a path through those giant bears.
“At last, they’ve finally stopped chasing after us, let’s take a break.” Tan Yongsheng gasped and motioned at them to rest.
Yi Tianyun was fine, he wasn’t fatigued at all, but when he stopped, a voice echoed in his ears.
『Ding! Congratulations on completing a random quest!』
『Reward: 30.000 exp, 10 prestige and 100 Favourability with Yan Lingxue.』
“Well, that was easy, an easy 10 Prestige.” Yi Tianyun smiled triumphally, this short quest was very cost-effective.
When the time came, he hoped to get another random quest like this. After all, this quest could increase his Prestige. Prestige was great because it affected his luck. He didn’t know what other benefits he would get as continued to raise his prestige.
